    I remember watching Toy Story for the first time in the cinema. I didn't care that it was in 3d. It actually had a good story that I loved. Fast forward to this year and I was working at the cinema for a summer job and one of the job involved me standing there and checking the tickets. Which meant I had to listen to the trailers. I can count the number of CGI movies that was coming out. Ant Bully, Cars, Monster House, Hoodwinked. Although it does seem quicker to make a movie in CGI than with traditional pen and paper, how many people will watch them again in 5 years time and still enjoy it? Just a rant.

    I´ll enjoy it forever if it´s a good movie, I don´t care it is BW, HD, CGI, Claymation,etc.

    A good movie, is always a good movie. [​IMG]

    I dunno. Probably depends on the CGI. If it's convincing (like Final Fantasy:Advent Children) Then yes, probably will stay a good movie. If it looks like clay people (that annoying casper special that's been on 24/7 for the past few days) then the people who made it should have their head impaled upon a stick. .\/.

    Or it'll go out of style when CGI movies are kept as CGI on the mass distributed discs, allowing viewers to see any viewpoint of a scene, with any resolution display (if anyone understands what I'm talking about) for the price of a disc player that will be able to render those CGI scenes in real-time.

    It didn't come out of nowhere, it came out of yuyuyup.
    It's not unusual in other words. [​IMG]

    I still like to watch the old Sinbad movies, with the Harryhausen animation. The skeletons still creep me out.
    What I hate is to see a movie like Anaconda, where the animation is so obvious it hurts.
    .. and I must confess, I too would like to see more adult fare with the pixar type animation, like a remake of Fritz the Cat or something.

    ..and laguerzinho.... robot Maria rox my sox, I hear the animated Metropolis is great too!

    ..and Toy Story never gets old. I watch it with the rugrats at least once a month.


    edit: for sorry spelling. yup! yuyuyup!
